Daily Fantasy Stock Report: Tony Romo likely to miss 8-10 weeks

Every morning we compile the most important fantasy football links of the day for you to stay up-to-date and ahead of your fantasy opponents… This is your number one place for beat writer blabber, injury news, transaction tracking, and fantasy analysis from the experts who taught us a thing or two.

“Romo will undergo another MRI exam this weekend, nine to 10 days after the initial injury. Those results will dictate whether the Cowboys carry him on the active roster or place him on injured reserve, meaning the earliest he could return would be Nov. 6 against Cleveland. This means the six- to 10-week time frame that surfaced in initial reports is more of an eight- to 10-week window.”

David Moore, Dallas Morning News

It looks like Dak Prescott will be starting for at least the first half of the season and possibly into the second half. We broke down everything regarding Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Dez Bryant on the podcast (subscribe and rate on iTunes, now) and we remain high on the running back and the receiver. Prescott has a favorable schedule for the first half and has a high ceiling as a potential late-round flier — especially if you select Tom Brady. Take your time old man Romo. No rush.

Yesterday we told you that Jamaal Charles will not necessarily open up as the starter in Kansas City, and today we aren’t sure if he will even be available for Week 1. Charles’ game is predicated on quick cuts and his speed, which is different than when Adrian Peterson tore his ACL and came back better than ever. Charles will turn 30 this season and could be a little slower in his recovery. If you draft him, handcuff Spencer Ware a little earlier than you planned.

Christine Michael truthers can relax now. When Thomas Rawls is healthy (shooting for Week 1), he’s the starter and there’s no argument. Rawls will get the bulk of the carries on first and second down, but watch out for rookie CJ Prosise, who took all the third down snaps in their third preseason game vs Dallas.  With Marshawn Lynch out of the picture, this backfield could get a little congested.

Quick Hits:

  • As of right now, the Bears’ top-3 cornerbacks are out and could all miss Week 1 vs the Texans. DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller (even though he sucks) should EAT
  • Derrick Henry finished the preseason with a bang, rushing for 62 yards and scoring a touchdown on 7 carries
  • Skins RB Rob Kelley finished the preseason with 198 yards on 38 carries (5.2 YPC), making this backfield a fantasy disaster
  • Bi-Polar Bucs’ TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins screamed at his head coach during their last preseason game. He’s had quite the preseason and should start on the bench.
  • Tom Brady played the entire first half vs the Giants. Dumb, imo.
